thank you so much. i guess when i saw the word virus i went into panic mode.
could the authentium be the anti-vius program that came with the Windows XP2. The one that is turned off because with it on I could do nothing on the internet? Ewido and the security suite that is with Verizon DSL are just fine. would it free up enough space to remove it or just leave it alone?

if you didn't install it...then see if it's in add/remove programs and uninstall it..i've seen a few references to it not being very good...and possibly opening security holes
